    As seen on public television, this four-program set has been created to assist educators and parents in guiding children to become motivated, thoughtful and active learners.  Including a companion guide with each program, the series examines such habits of mind as personal curiosity, problem solving, "as-if" thinking and acceptance of different points of view.  While each program explores a different topic, literacy, play, ethics and the environment, all encourage a lifelong interest in learning itself.

    How do children come to literacy? This documentary observes that encouraging young children to make pictures, to invent their own graphic representations, sets the literacy process in motion. As children experiment with crayons, markers and pencils, they begin to realize that these marks can stand for the sounds of language. That learning path leads from telling stories with pictures to telling stories with words. And as some very enthusiastic young students demonstrate, these early interests can evolve into a passion for reading and writing.

    Even as sociocultural diversity continues to grow in the U.S., many classrooms offer a one-size-fits-all curriculum in which assessment relies heavily on standardized tests. Rejecting the narrow viewing of young children solely as prospective students, the authors see them as "simultaneously players, learners, readers of the world and words, artists—among other identities." This volume gives us rich evidence of the role of stories (enacted and told), imaginative play, and writing in children's language learning. Copublished with Teachers College Press

    The ability to use language (speak, read, write) is not something that children suddenly or automatically develop. It is rather a culmination of experiences with language that begin at birth. Sharing stories (oral storytelling, books) and “story experiences” (conversations, songs, poems, rhymes) with infants and toddlers is critical to building their emergent literacy skills. At the same time, it expands their experience and understanding of the world and also prompts positive interactions with adults and other children, fostering social development.

    A day in a preschool classroom can be hectic, and with so many learning goals to be met, it’s no surprise that teachers sometimes wonder how they will get it all done. This accessible book by Judith Schickedanz shows teachers how to maximize the scope and power of their instruction through integration—across content domains and across learning contexts.

    From the very beginning of a child's life, effective listening includes becoming aware, focusing, selecting cues from the environment, and filtering out distractions. And in the preschool years, children are ready to learn a lot more about becoming good listeners. Yet very few teachers have had specific preparation for actually teaching children how to listen.
